Doctors aren’t sure why Annabel Beam, who was diagnosed with two incurable intestinal disorders, is in the pink of health after a life-threatening fall. But her mother owes it to her trip to heaven during the time her physical body was unconscious.
Annabel was playing outside her Texas home with her sisters, Abigail and Adelynn, one day in December 2011 when she slipped and plummeted 30 feet (approx. 9 meters) headfirst down the inside of a hollowed-out cottonwood tree. “She hit her head three times on the way down,” her mother, Christy Wilson Beam, said, MailOnline reported.
Girl, 9, says she met Jesus in near-death experience, came back cured.
Firefighters spent hours rescuing 9-year-old Annabel. The little girl was eventually pulled out of the tree after being trapped for six hours. She was immediately airlifted to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth.
Christy and her husband feared the worst, but miraculously, Annabel escaped unscathed. She sustained not even a head injury, other than “possibly concussion and some superficial bumps and bruises.” The doctors told the astonished parents: “I guess someone up there was looking out for her.”
What’s more incredible was that after the fall, tests revealed that Annabel was free of all the severe intestinal disorders she was diagnosed with since the age of 5, such as pseudo-obstruction motility disorder and antral hypomotility disorder.
Around 10 days or so after the accident, she had not had “a flare-up of her stomach,” Annabel’s father, Kevin Beam, told CBN. Christy credits it to a special encounter Annabel claims she experienced during the time she was unconscious.
Annabel told her parents she “went to heaven” and “sat in Jesus’s lap” when she was unconscious after the fall. “I saw in Anna’s eyes the conscious decision to confide in us,” Christy said. “There was no drama, she wasn’t playing either.”
“He had brown hair and a beard and he had… a white [robe]…,” Annabel said of Jesus, according to The Blaze. “And then… a purple [sash].”
The girl said heaven was really bright, and its gates were made of gold. She described how Jesus told her it wasn’t time. She also saw Mimi, her great-grandmother, who passed away in 2010, as well as “two little girls,” referring to Christy’s daughters from her previous two miscarriages.
“She just lived in the fetal position,” said the mother of Anna Beam, who was relieved of an incurable illness after falling out of a tree. Now they’re “so grateful.”
When Annabel began to regain consciousness, she claims she saw a fairy-like guardian angel, who was shining a light so that she could see. “I started to wake up in the tree and I could hear the firemen’s voices. And I saw an angel that looked very small, like a fairy,” she said.
Today, Annabel is completely medication-free, and she can enjoy her meals without worries. “I can’t explain what happened to her physically while she was in that tree,” said Kevin. “She wasn’t well before and now she is.”
While doctors had no answer for why Annabel’s chronic intestinal disorders had disappeared after the fall, Christy attributes her recovery to “Miracles From Heaven.” While Kevin said: “All I know beyond that is that she believes she went to Heaven. And I believe her when she tells me she believes it.”
Not all stories of children seeing heaven are genuine though. In January 2015, Alex Malarkey, who claimed he went to heaven when he was 6 years old in a book, admitted in an open letter that it was a lie.
However, Annabel asserted that her account was true. She told PEOPLE: “Believe in it if you want to. We put this out so you could have a stronger faith and probably a better life.”
Speaking to CBN, the girl said: “I just hope that people who are going through what I did, or any hard time of struggling, keep faith in God and realize that He’s not just forgetting about you and He really does know about you and He really does care and He has a plan. You have to keep faith in Him.”
